Larry was born October 18, 1943 in Mineral Wells, Texas to Earl and Florence (Berger) Hamant. He was raised in Dayton, Ohio and after high school graduated from Wright State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics.  Larry married Margaret “Peggy” Greene on May 2, 1964 at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in Beavercreek, Ohio. They moved their family to Maple Grove, MN in 1976.  Larry worked for Control Data as a Software Engineer and later for Siemens as a Senior Engineer until his retirement in 2005.

Larry was an avid sports fan. He was a beloved coach for multiple sports teams with each of his children.  He enjoyed playing golf, and after his retirement, would winter in Arizona with Peggy.  He loved the time spent with family and especially the times with his grandchildren.

Larry lost his battle with Alzheimer’s, but he almost always had a smile on his face and was an absolute joy to be around.  He truly lived and loved life to the fullest.

Larry is survived by his wife Peggy, children Jane Cornell, Tim Hamant, Jill (Sam) Herrera and Carol (Mike) Daniel, 10 grandchildren: Noah Cornell, Grant, William and Andrew Hamant, Mikel Hill, Samantha and Sophia Herrera, Lauren (Joe) Propson, and Matthew and Nathan Daniel, brothers Michael (Sharon) Hamant, Stephen (Diane) Hamant, sister Marilyn (Glenn) Rogers, and sister-in-law Virginia Greene.

Preceding Larry in death were his parents.

Larry was the patriarch of the Berger/Boling/Hamant/Koetz clan and we (cousins) all looked up to him. He set a great example for all of us on how to live your life. Peggy, I will always remember the time I spent with you and Larry in Dayton one summer as a kid. We send our love and condolences to you and your family and to Mike, Steve, Marilyn and their families. Rest in peace Larry. You will be missed by all.

Duane and I always enjoyed Larry and his great sense of humor. He always made me smile. I rode to work with him in Dayton in the 60's when he worked at Sinclair College and I was at Ohio Bell. Duane played golf with him many times. We enjoyed being with Peggy and Larry over the years. I will always remember our "Miss America" nights. He will be missed. Prayers to all of you.
